i went to see my good friend in kentucky and retrieve murphy. murphy is recovering from neglect, and worse. he's also deaf. but he is a sweetheart. and possibly the coolest dog ever.
murphy spent his first day here with me at school. at one point i looked over and saw that he was being hugged by five sixteen-year-old boys. he was in heaven and they were too. i think his prison inmate trainers will be pleased.
the woman who runs the prison program told me she thought murphy could be a therapy dog. i think he already is.
